That’s What You Get

I reworked the lyrics to this song over the summer — “waking up in Vegas” seemed to me to be a good metaphor for how a growing portion of the 52% of the country who voted Obama in 2008 is beginning to feel about that vote. The vocals are mine too. I put it up on YouTube a little over a week ago, where it has so far garnished over 800 hits. Not bad for a first run.

(“First run, you say?” Oh yes. There are more like this to come.)

If anyone reading this has the skillz to put together video to go with it, by all means feel free to do so and/or contact me.

And the lyrics; everybody sing along!

You gotta help me out
It’s all a blur last year
I voted for this guy
Then he up and disappeared
He promised Hope and Change
But we just got more of the same
Lies and corruption
Spending all our kids’ money

Just called the White House
To give a piece of my mind
Got called a racist
And then they laughed and told me

Better get used to all the D.C. drama
That’s what you get for voting for Obama
Shut up, get back in line, do as you’re told now
That’s what you get for voting for Obama

The media spin won’t fly
I’ve seen it with my own eyes
Spare me your frickin’
Tingly legs, you don’t fool me

Just called the Congress
And told them this is a crime
Got called a Nazi
And then they laughed and told me

We’re gonna make this government grow massive
That’s what you get for voting for Progressives
Shut up, get back in line, do as you’re told now
That’s what you get for voting for Progressives

They try to push all this
Information overload
Try to keep their own control
Send out an SOS
And get the word out
We’re gonna take back that town
Start this November
Remember what they told us
Remember what they told us
Remember what to tell them, tell hem, tell them

Oh
Get out, you’ll have to find a new vocation
That’s what you get for messing with our nation
Shut up and get into the unemployed line
That’s what you get for messing with our nation

That’s what you get baby
Send them packing
Take take take it back now
Don’t need a bailout, baby
Just need a ballot baby
